Nowadays, the concept of “co-working space” is very popular, and so do “mobile” and “micro” entrepreneurship. But what is the relationship between co-working space and the access control system? Whether it’s a co-working space (formerly known as business center), the main purpose is to let the tenants access the office space whenerver they need to. Thus, a good access control system can provide them with such convenience and hence will definitely increase their renewal rate.

So what kind of access control system can provide this convenience?

There are mainly three types of electronic access control system provided in the market: a keypad system, a card-swipe system, or biometric identification system such as using fingerprint recognition, or face recognition. If used in a co-working space environment, it is inconvenient to use the keypad access control, because whenever a new tenant comes in, you need to pass the password to them and if for any case you want to change the password, you must notify all tenants, and that will increase your administrative costs. So a better choice will be a swipe-card or biometric access control system. However, in using a biometric identification system, one must delete the tenant’ data whenever they want to move out whereas the swipe-card system, one basically needs to re-collet the key-card when the tenant leaves. Both systems have their benefits and I think the co-working space management should review which is good for them!
